Why is soil life important?

The healthy natural soil in the world maintains a web of life including bacteria, fungi, protozoa, nematodes and in addition, bigger creatures like earthworms and slugs. These life forms perform a key part in the life of plants. They decompose organic matter to make the supplements accessible to plant roots. They condition the soil and make air spaces and passages in it – enhancing air circulation and seepage. Furthermore, they contend with other more dangerous life forms in the soil, which will harm your plants if left unchecked. 

There are a few diverse ways you can include life

 Vermi Compost: Worm compost is particularly rich in soil life. It’s my number one choice for adding life to Soil. When matter is passed through the worm's body it becomes inoculated with all sorts of tiny life forms. So worm compost contains bacteria, fungi and other microscopic goodies (as well as worms!).Need to prepare our own compost(long process), buying outside will prone to unwanted seeds. There effectiveness and quality depend on making process. Costs around 5-30rs/kg.

Farm Yard Manure or Chicken Manure: Manure is also rich in microbial life. In urban places you can often find it – free or at low cost(one tractor load is 1000-3000). But, the effect of manure depends on the measure of decomposition.Fresh manure will not be effective, it takes time to decompose in the soil.Manure varies tremendously in quality and the goodies – and nasties like drug residues. Now people are giving so many medicines to rearing mammals or birds. Bio-slurry which is prepared on decomposing manure gives quick and authenticate results.
Green Manure: Very effective, give quick results.After mixing into soil with 15-30 days it decomposes and gives life to microorganisms + nutrients to plant. Simple process but need to wait 40-60 days before the main crop.
Ghana Jeevamrut: It is a very effective technique to enrich soil but it depends on the quality of Cow Manure and making process.

Bio Agents: Very effective but those need to mix with one of the above, their quality depends on making process. Should buy at an authenticated store.

We can't figure out which is best. Its depend on their availability. In my view green manure is cheap & anyone can implement easily without any difficulties against to transportation or specific making process.

Five Layer Shri Palekar Ji Model - 36*36 model for full 1 acre

Huge trees, for example, Mango, Jack-fruit, Jamun, and Amla ought to be planted 36 feet separated.
Guava, Chikku, Lemon and Pomegranate saplings can be planted in the middle of the mango plants at a separation of 18 feet.
Papaya, Drum-stick, Banana that involve lesser space ought to be planted in a space of 9 feet between the second arrangement of trees recorded previously. The above plants ought to be planted along a similar column over the plot of land leaving space to develop a single assortment of vegetables, millets and so forth on each bed.
separate 1 section of land into a break even with squares of 36ft X 36ft. In each piece of 36 ft x 36 ft ( which is additionally separated into four 9ft X 9ft sub-squares) We can grow around 170 trees, in that 9ft x 9 ft part of the land (one sub-square). Plant 1 Banana Tree, 4 Arecanut Trees, 4 Black pepper Creepers getting on Arecanut trees, 2 Coffee Plants, 2 Glirsedia Trees, 2 Venella Creepers hopping on Glirsedia trees and 32 Ginger Plants …

Navadhanya Cropping System

NAVADHANYA has not introduced by anybody from his/her own experiences and knowledge. It has evolved, by following the climatic conditions; district farmers were cultivated dryland agriculture in the district. With the erratic rainfall every year the farmers are facing drought in the district. Even though in erratic rainfall also the dry land agriculture is sustained in the district during the past. With experiences in their life, the cropping system was evolved as NAVADHANYA a dryland agriculture system in the district. The NAVA DHANYA is an intercropping system in dryland agriculture. It has evolved to sustain crops in erratic rainfall by the farmer’s experiments. And also, it has evolved the system for trapping erratic rainfall and utilizing 100% to the crops. So, the farmers used the system as net of erratic rainfall in drought-prone areas for protecting at least 2/3 of the crops in their fields. The cropping system will keep the land greenery for 10 months in a year. So, the syste…

Dhabolkar method of green manuring

Mr.Dhabolkar, an organic farming expert in Maharashtra, has proved the efficacy of green manure method, which helps to return to the soil many times more nutrients than what we take from that same soil. The first step, therefore, to enrich the soil organically is to grow a variety of crops on the land and then plough the green matter back into the soil. Using this method it is possible to enrich the depleted soil in just two hundred days. Even land that has been depleted of all nutrients due to chemical farming can be resuscitated in this manner.By growing the following crops for 50-60 days and then ploughing them in-situ we add balanced nutrients and micro-nutrients to the land. The soil will become enriched in less than a year and micro-nutrient deficiency is eliminated.

The following quantities will suffice for one acre.
Choose four of each of the following types:(One from category total five)

1. Grains: 5Kg (Example: 1 kg Sorghum, 500 gms Pearl millet, 250 gms Foxtail millet, 250 gms …
